DESCRIPTION

Roll in the Year of the Ram with talented dancers, musicians and stilt walkers at the Asian Art Museum’s annual Lunar New Year Celebration. Students from the Chinese American International School and China Dance School and Theatre present traditional and modern music, as well as dances from China to kick off the Lunar New Year. Join in with a playful student-arranged version of the lion dance, which is believed to scare away evil spirits and ensure a bright beginning to the year. To round up the day’s activities, learn to walk on stilts and dance with ribbons in fun interactive demonstrations.
